12 states slammed by severe weather - Nov 18th, 2013 - National

Damaging winds and tornadoes slammed into a dozen states but the Midwest was especially hard-hit, with six people killed and entire neighborhoods destroyed. In hardest-hit Washington, Ill., law enforcement officers continue to search for victims and size up the cleanup and rebuilding job ahead. Only residents and emergency workers are allowed in.
The National Weather Service says over Midwestern part of the U.S. on Sunday.
In central Illinois communities are taking account of the damage. Communications are difficult and many roads are impassable, so it's difficult to know how many more people may have been hurt by the string of storms.
